Sleep play a central part in our life. Its functions are multiples and its dysfunctions have large consequences on physical and mental health and performances. The expression and stability of sleep depend on a large brain network in interaction with its environment. The mini-conference will provide a didactic overview of brain activities during sleep and their functions based on the most
recent findings using state of the art techniques in animal models or human subjects. The role of environmental factors as well as basic mechanisms of neural networks and neuro-glial interactions will also be elucidated. Finally, innovative drug development will be discussed toward better
cognitive functioning. The content will be brought to you by a multi-disciplinary faculty of basic scientists and clinicians. The miniconference is organized by the French Society of Sleep Research and Sleep Medicine (SFRMS) in collaboration with the European Sleep Research Society (ESRS).
